This is not the Ambassadors Join Start Page, go there first!

A Mentor is your partner to get sponsored!

Mentors are experienced ambassadors who can help you quickly become acclimated to the work expected of Ambassadors as well as ensuring that Ambassadors within Fedora do an acceptable job of representing Fedora.

  • Please don't expect an immediate reply. Most mentors have full time jobs, families, and many responsibilities within Fedora. Please be patient.
  • A mentor will NOT initiate contact with you. You MUST initiate contact with a mentor.
  • Also note that a mentor is under no obligation to accept you, you may have to try several mentors, before you find one who has the time and availability to mentor you.

Choosing a mentor

Each major region has a list of possible Regional Ambassador Mentors. Please contact the Mentor via email and introduce yourself. Please include the following information:

  • Your main purpose for joining the Fedora Ambassadors.
    • Note: The mentor may ask you to expand upon this if it's incomplete, or seems inconsistent with the goals of the Fedora Ambassadors.
  • Your Fedora user wiki page. If you have not yet created your user page, please visit this page. The mentor will reject your application if you do not have a Fedora user wiki page.
  • A bit of information about what you have done so far to promote Fedora amongst your peers/friends.

This email will help the Mentor to assess your suitability to be an ambassador.

Regional Ambassador Mentors

You can obtain help from one of these mentors from your region. Please note that the status indicates whether an ambassador is available or unavailable. Sending an email to a mentor who is unavailable or outside your region will result in an unspecified delay!!!
